23 Skidoo

What is 23 Skidoo?


A term used in the early 20th Century for "get lost."

Bums would sleep around 23rd St and when the cops came along they would hit them with their billy clubs and say "23 skidoo."

Hey buddy, 23 skidoo.

A nonsense phrase used in the 20s. See 28 Skidoo. Usually a positive thing.

"23 Skiddoo!" said the flapper as she checked out the guy in the zoot suit.

Other people: Blahblah blahblahboringblah.

Smoker: Well, we gotta 23 skidoo!

Yes, an STD. (generally chlamidiya, gonnorhea, something that can be treated with penicillin or Cipro).

This phrase was used a lot in the circles I hung out with in the late 80's/early 90's.

Keith: "I was gonna do her, but I sniffed her coochie and realized I'd get the 23 skidoo from her."

Thomas: "Dude, that sux you didn't get any, but it beats going to the doctor."


Keith: "Yeah, I did her a week ago, and I had to go to the doctor today to get rid of the 23 skidoo she gave me. Fuckin' whore!"

Thomas: "Shit, that sux man. I won't tell anyone." "HEY, MIKE! KEITH GOT THE 23 SKIDOO FROM DONNA!!!"
